Montreal, Quebec, May 16, 2007—In response to growing global demand from IT decision makers in the distribution and logistics industries, software evaluation firm Technology Evaluation Centers (TEC) announces the launch of its Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP)-Distribution Evaluation Center, designed to help companies select the right ERP-Distribution software solution.
According to TEC, organizations often select the wrong ERP-Distribution software solution because they lack a clear understanding of their needs. To eliminate this problem, TEC recommends the use of its customized ERP-Distribution request for information (RFI) template, developed to help organizations conduct a thorough and successful requirements-gathering phase.
TEC also recommends that organizations use eBestMatch, its ERP-Distribution software evaluation tool, to conduct an online comparison of ERP-Distribution solutions. This enables the organization to save time, money, and staffing resources throughout the software evaluation process.
ERP-Distribution is defined as software that has been specifically designed for companies in the distribution and logistics industries. Traditional distribution business needs are focused on moving goods through a supply chain, and the distribution software market has developed products to fulfill these needs. The software solutions developed for ERP-Distribution include the additional functionality of supply chain management (SCM), distribution process management (DPM), and retail and commerce.
Dylan Persaud, senior ERP-Distribution analyst at TEC, adds that “as manufacturing becomes a more global phenomenon, distributors need to realize that the distribution of goods, whether raw materials or finished products, is increasingly becoming a central force to the global economy, and ERP-Distribution software solutions will aid them in that global economic shift.”
